Hispanic Caucus Pretty Upset Over Appointment Of Illegal Alien Hardliner

If it was a Republican group coming after Julie Kirchner, it would be deemed sexist, and that Republicans were afraid of a strong women. Patriarchy! Misogyny! In reality land, one has to wonder why people who take an oath to support and defend the Constitution are against upholding the law

Hispanic Caucus Calls on DHS to Remove Immigration Hardliner as Ombudsman

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus is criticizing the appointment of a Citizenship and Immigration Services ombudsman who previously worked for a group that supports immigration restrictions as “offensive, insensitive and malicious”

The caucus has called for the removal of Julie Kirchner, a former executive director of the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Lawmakers said she “made a career of attacking immigrant communities” during her time with FAIR.

FAIR is staunchly opposed to illegal immigration and advocates restrictions on legal immigration.

“I think it’s a huge mistake because it brings fear into the homes of many people who feel that are not going to be treated in a way that respect their constitutional rights,” Rep. Juan Vargas, D-California, told NBC News.

Newsflash: they’re here in violation of federal law. They should be fearful. If the Hispanic Caucus is unable to support the duly enacted laws of the United States, along with the provision of the Constitition that it’s their duty to defend the U.S. from foreign invasion, well, they should resign. They took their oath (#3) “freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion” and stated they would “faithfully discharge the duties of the office”.

Another hire of concern to immigration activists is Jon Feere, a former legal policy analyst at the Center for Immigration Studies, a conservative group that advocates for greater immigration restrictions. He was recently named a special adviser to Thomas D. Homan, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. (snip)

When asked about the hires, a White House official told NBC News,The President campaigned on increased border security and enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws and that’s exactly what the administration has been focused on.”

If the Hispanic Caucus doesn’t like it, well, then they should win the White House. In the meantime, they have a duty to perform based on the laws passed and the Constitution, but, then, those pesky things never stopped Democrats in the past.

In other illegal immigration news, it seems that sheriffs are pretty enthused about being able to enforce the law on illegals

We conducted a national survey of more than 500 sheriffs in 2012 and asked them about their attitudes, policies, and practices in their offices. Sheriffs are interesting because unlike most police chiefs, they are elected officials with a lot of independence and power — and a lot of responsibilities for making and carrying out policy. Studying sheriffs lets us look at how attitudes shape policies among elected officials.

Generally, sheriffs favor more resources and power to control immigration but do not have really negative attitudes about immigrants themselves.

We found that 85 percent of sheriffs agree that there should be more federal spending on tightening border security and preventing illegal immigration. And 70 percent of sheriffs thought that law enforcement should be allowed to ask about individuals’ citizenship status during routine patrols. That’s true even though only 38 percent say that immigrants take advantage of jobs and opportunities here without doing enough to give back to the community.

More and more sheriff’s departments are joining the 287(g) program, and “immigration arrests and deportations of nonviolent offenders have increased dramatically.” And then we have

Immigration rights groups are accusing federal officials of issuing blanket bond denials to detainees as a way to send a clear message to others: the era of being allowed out while awaiting a deportation court hearing is over.

Maligned by critics for years as “catch-and-release,” US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been clamping down on allowing detainees out while they await immigration court hearings, driving up the ranks of those in holding facilities, according to a letter sent to ICE Tuesday on behalf of more than 200 advocacy organizations.

Sheriff’s enthused? Going after more illegals? Restricting catch and release? Illegal alien hardliners in office? It’s all cause for
